ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER REVEAL
I’m so sorry that this one comes just about in time for tomorrow. It’s been a crazy day, and my weekend is going to be crazy, too (so my Monday Author may come late, too). But I’m here for a moment, and today we get to know Liluye, an Apache Indian girl who plays a part in Vengeance Road. Here’s what Erin’s vision is, taking from her tumblr (source below):
Separated from her tribe, this young Apache girl is anxious to reunite with her family. Knowing all too well how dangerous it is to be traveling alone, Liluye agrees to help Kate navigate the Superstition Mountains. But Liluye has her own end goals and her agreement with Kate could unravel at any moment.
Fun Fact: In Vengeance Road, characters constantly use each other as a means to an end. This is true regarding Liluye and Kate, but their dynamic changes over the course of the novel in a way that was so much fun (and extremely rewarding) to write. Yes, I’m being vague, but the pay-off is in the pages, and I don’t want to spoil that for you.

ANOTHER PUZZLE PIECE IN PLACE
I didn’t know that this was a character at all, and I love that it adds yet another angle, another dynamic, another person to add to her unintentional entourage. I love that she’s got this potential for so much of the Native American culture to shine through, like the Sacagawea to Kate’s Lewis or Clark, a guide through the wild. I’m really excited to see what part she plays (and I hope there’s an awesome brave searching for her!), so this is a really inspiring reveal for me. I can’t wait until tomorrow to see our final character photoset!
